“Hold out your hands to feel the luxury of sunbeams. Press the soft blossoms against your cheek, and finger their graces of form, their delicate mutability of shape, their pliancy and freshness. Expose your face to the aerial floods that sweep the heavens, ‘inhale great draughts of space,’ wonder, wonder at the wind’s unwearied activity. Pile note on note the infinite music that flows increasingly to your soul from the tactual sonorities of a thousand branches and tumbling waters. How can the world be shriveled when this most profound, emotional sense, touch, is faithful to its service? I am sure that if a fairy bade me choose between the sense of sight and that of touch, I would not part with the warm, endearing contact of human hands…” ― Helen Keller, The Open Door
I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited about a shoot (I probably say that after every epic shoot, but my job seriously never stops amazing me)! A friend and I went to visit my mom in Florida so I could play around with creating some fine art nudes on the beach and rocks. I was like a kid in a candy store! I shot so much that I’m going to have to break the blog about this trip into four parts! I LOVE BEACH BOUDOIR!!! Continue reading
These are a few photos from playing around with photographing pole dancing, aka pole fitness. This was just a practice run to see how it would be to light it. We’re planning on offering a pole photography day in the near future, so contact me if you’re interested in doing a pole session!
And if you’re interested in taking some pole classes (which I highly suggest every woman try at least once) you can book classes at Teaze Fitness through their website and you can find them on Facebook.
Eloquently stated. It gets a bit gut wrenching around 7ish min in. ❤
“Today you’re going to learn how to do this” says the instructor as she grabs the pole and her body glides through the air with her feet pointing straight up towards the ceiling, head to the floor. “it’s called an inversion”…. “Ha! Yeah…. right!” was my first thought. Continue reading
Katy applied for our model call. In her words, it was a “what the hell, it couldn’t hurt” kinda thing. Later she said that she didn’t expect to get picked at all (which is what everyone has said so far, lol). It was an immediate yes for us. Her reasoning sold us completely on the idea and we wanted to help her in her mission to educate people that just because she’s in a wheelchair doesn’t mean she’s not sexy. She is HELLA sexy! As shown in the photos. 😉 Continue reading
Imagine a place that’s soothing to your soul the moment you step foot in the door. A place with pristine white walls, warm wood accents and intriguing sculptures and art on the walls to dazzle your mind. Music caresses your eardrums like liquid silk as you are greeted by smiles and a genuinely friendly staff.
Now imagine this as the place where you go for your doctor visits. I’m not even kidding. Continue reading
So as I mentioned last week, Max and I went to Shreveport recently to give Sharelle the gentle push she needed to produce more tastefully erotic work (her blog about it here). While we were there, she photographed ME for practice. I’ve been shot many times before, but it never fails that I get nervous every. single. time. No idea why, I just do. And I know it’s ridiculous and silly and yadda yadda, I know I’ll be fine, just like I always tell my own clients (who are also almost always nervous).
Alas, in the end I LOOOVE the photos! I knew I would, I love Sharelle’s work.
So, without further ado, here I am! (Is it crazy that I’m even nervous about posting my own photos?! Sheesh!)
“I don’t want to be cute. I’m always cute.” That’s what Sharelle, a fellow boudoir photographer from Shreveport, told us when we set up a shoot with her at her studio. She wanted something that would “wow” her husband. We scheduled a shoot play date with her because she wanted to push herself a little further in her work to get tastefully provocative images. Max and I gave her some tips, photographed her so she would know what it feels like, then she photographed me so she could practice. (I’ll post my photos next week, stay tuned!)
Check out her blog about it here (and you can cheat and see my photos a week early).
“I don’t think many of us realize how often we look at ourselves in the mirror without really seeing ourselves. I put on makeup every day and see eyes, nose, lips, a belly that I think is too big… but this experience showed me an image of myself as a complete individual. The photos captured a spark that’s in me, that I had forgotten I have. If a picture is worth a thousand words, that remembrance is worth a thousand pictures.” -Sarah Continue reading
